A psychiatrist draws upon the basic premises and concepts of reality therapy to point out the cultural shift from goal to role motivation that has occurred in Western society. This interesting societal study by the father of Reality Therapy presents a view that since survival is no longer the major issue for humans, development of self and identity is a normal social quest.
